Rachael Ray is teaming up with PEOPLEPets.com for a contest to help shelter animals.
Here’s the lowdown on “Click the Cutest: Rachael Ray’s Shelter Helpers.” Ray wants to help homeless dogs and cats, so she and Nutrish, her charitable pet food, are giving three pet owners the chance to donate $25,000 to the rescue organization of their choice.
All you have to do is submit a cute picture of your rescue pet or pets. PEOPLEPets.com will select the cutest pictures and whichever one gets the most clicks/votes wins. The contest ends on Dec. 23.
The 43-year-old talk show host and chef loves helping animals. On her website, she has a section, Rachael’s Rescue, where she highlights animal rescue organizations.
In an interview with MSNBC.com, Ray revealed the most rewarding part of giving back to the animal community. “At the end of the day, I did something that day to make the planet a little bit better for literally a group that cannot speak for themselves. It makes you feel really good at the end of the day.”
Ray has donated so much to rescues. Her pet food line has given more than $2.5 million for food, medical supplies and treatments for these deprived animals.
